YouTube Announces TikTok Copycat ‘YouTube Shorts’ for 15-Second Videos

Like TikTok, the YouTube Shorts tool features a multi-segment camera to edit multiple video clips together, and will feature a library of songs to include as backing tracks for videos. Also mimicking TikTok, YouTube Shorts includes speed controls that “give you the flexibility to be creative in your performance” as well as a timer and countdown “to easily record, hands-free,” according to Jaffe. – Todd Spangler, Variety »
